From the LI Water Conference: November 23, 2011

Written by Karl Schweitzer Friday, 25 November 2011 00:00

There Is No Fluoride in Long Island’s Drinking Water

Over the last several weeks many of our members have been contacted by concerned residents asking about the amount of fluoride in their drinking water. Despite erroneous media reports and the practices of bottle water distributors, the Long Island Water Conference wants to once again assure Long Islanders that there is absolutely no fluoride in any of Long Island’s drinking water.

In a column earlier this year, I noted that the federal government announced concerns that fluoride levels in various parts of the country are too high. The determination is based on studies that show adding fluoride to drinking water provides little or no benefit to dental health and can, in fact, lead to adverse health conditions.

Skiing Memoirs Provide Entertainment and Inspiration

As we approach the new year and start thinking about resolutions and life goals, try this one: still be skiing when you are 93 years old. In Memoirs of a Geriatric Ski Bum, we learn that this is the goal of author Stanley Hirsch of Sea Cliff. And at the time of the new book’s printing, he was just 9 years away.

In the prologue of this memoir about a love affair with skiing, Hirsch tells his readers that, having found a passion for skiing at age 45, he felt the need to make up for lost time and has been on the slopes 1,500 days since then.


Voters Await Absentee Results

Terms of Recount Process Goes to Court

Three Nassau County Legislative Districts are up for recount this week, including the 18th LD, which encompasses the close City of Glen Cove election, where incumbent Democrat Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi and Republican challenger Paul Meli came within just 117 votes of one another - before absentee ballots were counted - and the race for council seats was even closer.

County Legislature candidates Republican Robert Germino and Democrat Delia DeRiggi-Whitton were within 37 votes of each other after election night, creating one of two close LD races that could tip the balance of power in the currently Republican controlled Legislature if Democrats end up winning both the 18th and 14th districts.

Four More Years…For NIFA Takeover?

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Friday, 11 November 2011 00:00

After election, Nassau taxpayers and workers await news on mass layoffs, precinct closings, extended ‘control period’

After going so far as initiating a lawsuit last year to avoid a takeover of Nassau County finances by the fiscal watchdog NIFA, County Executive Edward P. Mangano is now submitting a multi-year financial plan to that group seeking four more years of the “control period” that gives it authority over Nassau’s books.

Included in the plan is Mangano’s $2.6 billion budget for 2012 - approved by the Republican majority in the Legislature on Oct. 30 and currently sitting with NIFA for approval - which has left some glaring questions that many hope will be answered now that Election Day is over. These include, an announcement on which two Nassau County Police precincts will be closed, what the future of Long Island Bus will be, and whether $150 million in labor savings will come from union “concessions” or in the form of a massive decimation of the county workforce.


Waves of Dedication at Pryibil

Friday, 11 November 2011 00:00

On Saturday, Sept. 17, the Glen Cove Beautification Commission hosted the annual Inter-Coastal Beach Cleanup.  The weather was windy, the air was brisk but the sun was brightly shining as Beautification members, including guest volunteer Kendra Sawyer, turned out to pick up, bag and record all sorts of litter along the coast of Pryibil Beach.  From food wrappings, plastic bottles, tobacco products to packing pellets, these dedicated Glen Covers worked hard to beautify the coast of one of their favorite beaches, collecting 60 lbs of trash.


Too Close for Comfort on Election Day

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Wednesday, 09 November 2011 15:25

Election Day 2011 revealed an extremely divided votership around much of Nassau County, with the Glen Cove area being no exception. At the time of this printing, the race between Delia DeRiggi-Whitton and Robert Germino for the 18th Legislative District was within a few votes (6,040 to 6,003 in Germino’s favor) and the Board of Elections was moving into hundreds of absentee ballots to get an accurate count. The mayoral race between Ralph V. Suozzi and Paul Meli was also close (2,915 to 2,798 in Suozzi’s favor), with political party representatives assuring that the Board of Elections had impounded voting machines to look at affidavits and absentees before confirming an official winner.

6 Candidates Vie for 3 Oyster Bay Town Board Seats

Friday, 04 November 2011 00:00

Anton Newspapers Asked the candidates to answer the following questions:

Rebecca Alesia

1. The County Legislature, the Towns of North Hempstead and Hempstead are divided into districts in order for residents in all area to be represented equally. Officials live in the district they represent and are familiar with the issues of that district. Would the Town of Oyster Bay benefit with this structure, as well?

“Since I joined the Town Board in 2010, I have traveled extensively across the Town meeting and speaking to residents and councilmanic districts has not been an issue. I know that Oyster Bay Town voters have twice rejected districts, and I get the sense they feel the at-large system is working. Having seven people representing you rather than just one means each and every member of the Town Board cares about your community, not just his or her little piece of the Town. Councilmanic districts can be divisive, pitting one district against another and encouraging the formation of coalitions among districts, which is never good for the residents.
